If you want to deliver RESULTS with your coaching, you must use emotions as the driving force! Think for a moment of the driving force behind our solar system. The sun! Now think of the sun as an enormous fiery ball of fragmented emotions that are like the liquid gasses bubbling to the surface. Once they reach the surface, they radiate heat and deliver energy to give light and power to the earth. When your client releases raw and fragmented emotions, they are captured by a Persona that acts as...

One of my favorite pastimes as a child was to open a puzzle book and flip to the page that showed what appeared to be a collection of randomly strewn dots on top of a partly drawn picture, with each dot having an assigned number adjacent to it. Connect the dots in their numerical sequence 'et voilà', the full picture emerges! For your clients, the picture that emerges represents the connections they have with people who plays a significant role in their life. In other words, their INFLUENCERS!

And while this COST may be of an emotional nature, it often has a significant impact on the quality of life for your client. As a coach, you must know how to...

One of the unique elements of perception is its dependency on interpretation. While we cannot create our own perceived identity, we certainly project it onto others. And just as our personal perceptions about relationships are unique, so are the qualities that we use to validate them. And it is in these qualities that we find the answer to the question: “Do opposites attract?”

Your coaching clients can use the power of a persona by creating a profile that is focused on achieving the RESULTS they want you to deliver. Once your client developed a profile for such a person, they can internalize that persona and become that person. And that makes your client’s new persona so powerful.

The genetic blueprint for Leadership is in your clients DNA! But many of them were conditioned to act as “followers”. This conditioning comes from the people who influenced them, the environment that surrounded them and the events that shaped them. Leaders are perceived to be risk takers and for many of your clients, risk equates to the possibility of failure.

One of the primary benefits of Results Coaching is that it raises the bar on your client’s level of incompetence. Whatever the desired outcome of your client, it must be greater than the level of incompetence that the client has achieved to date. Why else would they invest in the services of a coach?

FAILURE is the unintended outcome of an objective that was meant to be achieved. While the desired outcome to accomplish something is real, the FAILURE to achieve the desired outcome is interpretive and therefore subjective. FAILURE is in fact an illusion.

There is an interesting side benefit to delivering RESULTS for your coaching clients. Once your client achieves a certain desired outcome, that RESULT will invariably lead to other outcomes. In fact, one positive result can sow the seeds for a multitude of outcomes that will create a long-term bond and coaching relationship between you and your client. I call this the “Domino Effect of the Results Multiplier”.

We all have experienced moments of ‘awkward silence’. It often happens when there is disagreement on an issue and the silent party stops articulating its point of view. When that happens, the other party starts to panic. Nature abhors a vacuum, so we feel compelled to break the silence! We start to speak!

One of the challenges coaches face is dealing with a client who is ambivalent about the outcome. In previous episodes, I alluded to the fact that clients need to perceive that the achievement of a RESULT is directly contributable to working with you as a coach! If they don’t perceive this correlation, the value of your coaching program is summarily diminished . . . and so are your coaching fees!

A true coach is both charged with facilitating the achievement of a Desired Outcome and entrusted with the successful realization of the client’s goal or objective. A true coach is therefore someone who is both a leader and a servant. A true coach leads his clients to a Desired Outcome, while at the same time serving his clients in their quest to achieve their Desired Outcome.

There is much more to coaching than simply picking up the phone at a pre-arranged time and connecting with your client for a 30-minute chat! The old axiom “You only get out of it, what you put into it” was never more true than for your coaching session.
